Microservices based architecture

The implementation of a microservices architecture emerged as a key strategy, allowing the creation and efficient management of modular components. This modular approach not only facilitated seamless data handling but also ensured the scalability necessary to support the platform's growing user base

Third-party vendor implementation

By integrating third-party solutions, we enabled Sidepocket to provide its users with a streamlined mechanism for buying and selling shares, thus enriching the user experience. Through seamless integration of third-party solutions, we empowered Sidepocket to offer its users an enhanced and streamlined mechanism for buying and selling shares.

APEX implementation and Plaid implementation
